  • Summary

    A cobbler is the easiest way to get to something similar to a pie—meltingly tender and juicy fruit with a crusty topping—without having to make, roll out, and crimp pie dough. Biscuit dough, in general, is easy and fast to assemble, but the cream dough below is a real cinch because you don't even have to blend butter into the flour mixture; you just pour in heavy cream and stir, then pat it out with your hands. A round cutter is your default shape but feel free to rummage through your cookie cutter collection for something fun, such as a leaf or diamond.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds firm Bartlett pears, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
    • 1 2/3 cups fresh cranberries (6 ounces)
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2 (1- by 3-inch) strips orange zest, finely chopped
    • 1/4 cup brandy
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into bits
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • rounded 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup heavy cream, divided
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • Citrus-Infused Custard Sauce
    • 2- to 2 1/2-quart shallow baking dish (1 1/2 - to 2-inches deep); 2-inch round cookie cutter
